The Joy is in the making 

Sat 29 May - Sun 31 Oct: 10am - 4pm (start date dependent on Government restrictions).

Step into Standen House to discover installations created by celebrities exploring the therapeutic benefits the hand making process can have on wellbeing, and why the Arts & Crafts are relevant today. Be inspired by the process of pottery by Keith Brymer Jones, the intricate detail of cross stitch by Mr X Stitch, the beauty of embroidery from Niamh Wimperis, Kaffe Fassett’s colourful designs and Edith Bowman's joyful photographs.

May half term at Standen

Grab a spotter sheet from Visitor Reception and see what you can find on your adventures this half term. From creepy crawlies to birds and squirrels, meet the woodland residents of Standen and listen out carefully for the sound of a woodpecker, a cooing pigeon or a buzzing bee. Finish your sheet off at home or on other adventures in your local area as well.
